The La Trinidad municipal government has been able to settle its P10 million obligation to a private company hauling its waste to Capas, Tarlac but there is no record to show that the municipal council has authorized release of funds to settle the debt.

LUNA, Apayao – President Benigno Aquino III promised to finish the construction of the 134-kilometer road network that would soon link Apayao to the provinces of Ilocos Norte and Cagayan through the Ilocos Norte-Apayao-Cagayan Road.

OFF-LIMITS TO VEHICLES -- Upon the recommendation of a Philippine Sports Commission official, the Athletic Bowl, will be off-limits to vehicles once the rubberized track is installed. Installation may finally push through next month, as Pagasa forecast dry weather to the early onset of El Niño.
